Penn State NIT Problems Against George Mason

Penn State an NIT number 2 seed had problems against seventh seeded George Mason. As we know though from The Big Dance that George Mason can have the talent to be a Cinderella team come March Madness. It took Penn State's Taylor Battle's three at the end of regulation to send the game into OT. In the OT period Taylor Battle then continued to give George Mason scoring 8 points in the OT to lead the Nittany Lions to a 77-73 win, Battle scored 24 points total. Cameron Long was George Mason's leading scorer with 16 points.

Penn State a perennial doormat in the Big Ten found new life in 2009 and made great strides as a program. It was believed by many that they had an excellent shot of playing in the NCAA Tournament this year, however now the look to gain valuable post season experience this year with a long NIT run.
